Video – Federal Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra

Vivek Kundra covers a lot of Government 2.0 ground in this video and the audience had several good questions about the Government’s Open Data initiatives.  This is a long video, but it is also packed with information about where we are headed with Government 2.0.

Gov 2.0 moving forward with Apps.Gov

This is an intelligent idea, an app store for the Government.  This is a very interesting concept, I think we all learned a thing or two from Apple’s iPhone app store which can be applied to how we all use technology.  I recommend taking a quick look at their “Cloud Computing” video (upper right corner) on https://apps.gov/cloud/advantage/main/home.do
